TBEN News host Lawrence Jones weighed in on the Democrats who “sounded the alarm” about the border crisis in the United States on “Cross Country with Lawrence Jones.”
LAWRENCE JONES: Democrats are now sounding the alarm about our the country’s growing border crisis. But we ask ourselves: what has changed with the situation that finally allowed the left to speak? Well, nothing really, except that the border crisis isn’t a distant problem now that they can play off for cheap political points.

Mayor MURIEL BOWSER 2017: Well, I couldn’t say it any clearer about what it means for Washington, DC, to be a haven.
Mayor BILL DE BLASIO 2019: We have your back in New York City. We will protect you. We will not ask for your documentation status.
CIVIL LONDON RACE 2019: San Francisco stands behind our sanctuary cities policy.
Mayor ERIC GARCETTI 2016: Los Angeles and other major cities have always been a place to welcome refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants.
Mayor LORI LIGHTFOOT 2019: This is a city that has been a welcome city for immigrants from people all over the world for 150 years.
So passionate. As you can see, for years liberals have bragged about their cities being open to illegal immigrants, and now they are begging the federal government for help and reinforcements. That’s the same kind of help that the border towns, the whole state of Texas, have been asking for for years. But when Republicans asked for help at the border, they were labeled racist, xenophobic — they didn’t send a cavalry for the Republicans. This is just the latest example of Democrats ignoring the problem until it eventually ends up in their own backyard. Heck, last week Kamala Harris insisted the border was secure. But what does the Biden administration have to say now that they can’t ignore this crisis?
PRESIDENT BIDEN: We are committed to fixing the immigration system rather than working with us on solutions. Republicans play politics with people and use them as props. What they are doing is just wrong. It’s un-American, it’s reckless.

So the Democrats play politics with human lives. I mean, this is really cruel what they’re doing, ignoring the daily crisis on the southern border and pretending innocent Americans haven’t been bothered by this for years, writing off their worries just because they don’t vote for Democrats.
